So it came out that this is being fabbed not on 10nm Superfin, (like Tiger Lake) but 10nm Enhanced Superfin. If that seems like a mouthful you might appreciate that Intel have rebranded all their upcoming nodes to be a bit more in line with how others are marketing their nodes/products. "Intel 7" now.
Branding aside, this was news to me. Would explain part of the gains shown here aren't just down to architecture - lends a bit of credence to the rumours.
Several Intel Alder Lake-S Desktop CPUs have leaked today which include benchmarks of the Core i7-12700 and pictures of engineering samples.
Early engineering sample is ok but not impressive considering how much Intel is promising with their 10nm. Can't wait to see these things finally release and who will take the lead since Zen 4 is also comingo soon.
